Sparks Fly! Spanked By A Subscriber Over Microwave Ovens…

Our Reader Says “Duhhhh, Get A Clue!”


By Nurse Mark


We get lots of letters at The Wellness Club, and sometimes folks take us to task since many of our positions are, shall we say, controversial in the “Natural Medicine” world – that is, we are not automatically against drugs, surgery, or modern technology. We feel that there is a time and place for all these things, but that they must be used carefully and wisely and only after a full analysis of the associated risks and benefits – just as vitamins, herbs, detoxification, energy work, and other non-allopathic treatments must be.

Regular readers know that Dr. Myatt is one of the most scientific, fact-based, research-driven physicians in practice anywhere today. That rigorous scientific attention to detail is what keeps her “stage 4″ cancer and cardiac patients (folks, there is no “stage 5″…) alive and well year after year when they have been given up on by the conventional medical powers-that-be. Dr. Myatt gets the “tough cases” that Mayo, Johns Hopkins, Yale, and others wash their hands of.

When you read HealthBeat News you gain the benefit of that rigorous, hard-nosed research. When Dr. Myatt makes a statement you can be sure that it is based on fact – not fancy, not wishful thinking, not urban legend, and not somebody’s advertising campaign. You can bet your good health on it!

So, we had to smile when this letter came in:


Hi, I just subscribed to your newsletter. I was curious about the “healthy blueberry muffin” recipe you are featuring.

The ingredients look great but the instructions explain to microwave the muffins… are you kidding???

Duhhhh, how about your next featured article should explain the disadvantages of microwave cooking to all your subscribers and publishers who need a clue.


Whew! I guess we’ve just been told!

But we’ll cut this reader some slack – as a new subscriber this person has probably not seen our article of not-too-long-ago that was researched and written in response to a number of similar comments generated when we introduced our Healthy Blueberry Muffin recipe.

The article, Cooking in The Microwave Oven: Is It Safe? is a must-read for anyone with questions about radiation, ionizing radiation, and the safety of microwave ovens.

OK dear reader, here’s your clue: please read our microwave safety article and let us know if you have any questions or if you wish to dispute any of the facts of the article – just be prepared to back up your statements with referenced scientific facts, not with internet legend, superstition, or fear and fantasy!

Oh, and welcome to HealthBeat News!
